I will use the binary upgrade path. It seems easier for a non high-tech 
system ;-)
My system is running ZFS on root now, so I would very much like to hear 
if the binary upgrade through freebsd-update works well for such a 
system (w/ zfs on root). I don't want to get stuck with a system that 
won't boot again because something goes wrong with zfs.
